Could you not just use:

    <tiles:insertTemplate name="head" ignore="true"/>

I haven't used the new taglib API yet, so I'm pretty rusty.

In case you missed the intent of this change we were thinking that the
<tiles:insert> tag was too ambiguous.  So the intent was to simplify it and
make it more clear.  If you have to use two lines as above I don't see that
we simplified it any :-)
